4 There is great flexibility within this framework. Your starting point will depend on your skills, experience and qualifications. A Range of Awards You don t have to go to university... to go to university! Foundation Year ENT Full-time: 1 year Part-time: 2 years HNC Work related course Full-time: 2 years Part-time: 3/4 years HND Work based course Full-time: 2 years Part-time: 3 years FOUNDATION DEGREE Usually full-time: 3 years Third year possible to do part-time BA / BSC (HONS) POST-GRADUATE COURSE Foundation Year The Foundation Year currently links to degrees in a wide range of subject areas to provide a route onto your chosen degree course, if you don t have the required entry qualifications. The content of the Foundation Year is tailored appropriately to your chosen degree and helps you to develop the study skills and academic knowledge needed to start Year 1 of your degree course with confidence. Higher National Certificate (HNC) A Higher National Certificate (HNC) takes one year of full time study or 2 years of part-time study. These qualifications can then lead onto a Higher National Diploma. Higher National Diploma (HND) A Higher National Diploma (HND) is a work-related course provided by further and higher education colleges in the UK. A full-time HND takes two years to complete, while a part-time HND takes three to four years. Generally a HND is equivalent to second year of university. A HND can be converted into an Honours degree with additional study. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland a HNC/HND is Level 5 on the National Qualifications Framework. What is the benefit of HNC/HND? HNCs/HNDs are vocationally focussed and therefore can lead straight to a career. Moreover, they are a great stepping stone to a higher qualification. HNCs can allow access into the second year of a bachelors degree, whereas HNDs can allow entry into the second or third year. Foundation degree Foundation degrees are work-based qualifications in a range of vocational areas. They are often available by either part-time or full-time study. Foundation degrees usually take two years to complete full-time or within three years if studied part-time. All Foundation degrees offer a guaranteed progression route to at least one named honours degree at one of our partner universities. Developed with local employers to meet skills shortages, all Foundation degrees have a substantial amount of work-based learning and assessment including, in some cases, delivery in the workplace, with all students having the support of a work-place mentor. BA / BSc (Hons) A Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Sciences Honours degree (360 credits) is usually a full-time academic course lasting for three years. Students progressing from a Foundation degree or Higher National route may be able to take the third year of an Honours degree on a full or part-time basis. On completion, students may be eligible for post-graduate study such as a Master of Arts or Sciences. South Staffordshire College delivers some of its Higher Education in partnership with Wolverhampton University and Staffordshire University. A Range of Awards For those without specific AS/A Level qualifications Equivalent to year 2 of Degree Equivalent to year 2 of Honours Degree COLLEGE Higher Education means you can study a Foundation degree, a Higher National Certificate (HNC) or a Higher National Diploma (HND), or a Diploma of Higher Education.
